Obama Campaign Canvasser Arrested for Sexual Assault in Colorado
November 1, 2012 - 5:43 pm
The Denver Post reports that Luke M. Buchanan, 24, has been arrested after a woman accused him of canvassing for more than her vote. Surprisingly, his name is not “Clinton.”
Luke M. Buchanan, 24, of Washington, D.C. is charged with unlawful sexual contact, a misdemeanor. The victim’s name was not released. She is 21 years old, police said.
He has since been fired from his job with the Colorado Democratic Party.
“The female reported an adult male knocked on her door, identified himself as a member of the Obama political campaign and asked to speak with her about her voting status,” Loveland police said in a statement Thursday afternoon. “The victim reportedly spoke with the male for a short time and he then asked if he could give her a campaign sticker. The victim accepted and the male allegedly grabbed her breasts while applying the sticker to her shirt.”
A message left on Buchanan’s cell phone was not immediately returned Thursday afternoon.
RedState reports that this is not Mr. Buchanan’s first brush with the law.
Update: War on women, indeed.
